Everyday citizens in our community are making an impact on the lives of abused and neglected children each day here in Pueblo by becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).
CASA Volunteers are screened, trained and supervised by CASA of Pueblo staff and appointed by a District Court Judge to advocate for the best interests of children during the court process.
Most CASA's work an average of 4 hours per week on their assigned case. CASA's generally only take one case at a time. A CASA's job is to gather as much information and details about a child's life to give to the Judge so informed decisions can be made in hopes of a swift conclusion to each case with the child finding a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
CASA Volunteers see their assigned children on their case at least twice per month and meet with the child in family homes, foster homes, schools, during visitation and any where else the child may spend significant amounts of time.
You must be 21 years of age or older, ability to pass a variety of background checks, participate in a screening interview and also attend pre-service training.
